The fact of the matter is, Jordan was just better than everyone else and he carried that greatness through every quarter of every game, generally winning games rather easily. And he rarely had a poor night.
But as the article displays and a review of his great seasons demonstrates, Jordan did not take the Dwyane Wade path of the past two years and sit and do absolutely nothing for long stretches of games, hoping to pull it out at the end. Jordan was a game in and game out force, racking up 4+ win shares 6 times in the playoffs and also one year ending at 3.9 Win Shares. (Jordan career playoff win shares - 39.8; Magic Johnson =32.6.....Jordan Playoff PER 28.6, Magic 23).
But the idea that Jordan always won because he hit late shots in the last minute of games is, simply put, not consistent with the actual game footage.
